I really love watching a good series and I follow a lot, but there are two types of series that I can’t stand: hospital and cop dramas as I consider them so very, very boring…but…today I stopped by my usual Tvblog and I saw two names that got me really ecxited (two of my favourite actors) Woody Harrelson(!) and Matthew McConaughey(!). And they are going to make an eight-episode cop drama series produced by HBO. I mean this HAVE to be good, right?
It centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.
This is the first TV collaboration for best friends McConaughey and Harrelson who have done two features together, Edtv and Surfer, Dude. For McConaughey, this marks the first regular TV series gig, for Harrelson, it marks a return to the medium where he became a household name as one of the stars of Cheers (I’d totally forgot about that).
I will definitely have a look, what about you?
